Minneapolis Police Department to be dismantled

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Minneapolis, a Democrat-run city for 62 of the last 72 years, is coming apart at the seams. A veto-proof majority of the city council voted to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department, a 153-year-old institution. It is no surprise that, in spite of its great age, the police department in a far-left city might have some systemic problems.

The Council said that they made the decision because of the killing of George Floyd. They went farther, saying that policing in the United States is not keeping “our” communities safe. The council president, Lisa Bender, explained the council’s decision:

We’re here because we hear you. We are here today because George Floyd was killed by the Minneapolis Police. We are here because here in Minneapolis and in cities across the United States it is clear that our existing system of policing and public safety is not keeping our communities safe.Our efforts at incremental reform have failed. Period.

Thankfully, the Minneapolis City Council is not in charge of all US police departments. Many communities find their police departments and sheriffs to be very good at keeping their communities safe and would abhor the idea of disbanding them.

Far-left mayor, farther-left city council

Far-left mayor, Jacob Frey, does not agree with the even farther-left council, but he will not be able to veto their decision. He acknowledges problems within the police department, and he has been enacting incremental reforms such as body cameras for police officers, and a ban on “killology” or “warrior” style training for officers.

Public opinion has rapidly changed in the last two weeks and Frey’s reforms are no longer enough. They certainly did not save Floyd’s life. Frey, expressing his disagreement at a protest was met with raucous shouting and booing, with protestors shouting “go home, Jacob” and “shame.”

It is unknown what will come of the disbanding of the Minneapolis Police Department, but it isn’t hard to speculate that crime will rise, murders will increase, and decent people will try to get out as quickly as they can before their property values plummet. Perhaps Minneapolis will become a magnet city for organized crime and cartels? Many more rapes and murders will go unsolved, and drug dealers and human traffickers can establish headquarters in the city without fear of police.

What do you think the future of Minneapolis will be without a police department?

Watch this largely white crowd boo and heckle Jacob Frey:
